READING: What If? edited by Robert Cowley...827 pages, so give me a couple of weeks, okay? Have some lightweight reading going on as well.
LISTENING TO: Yiruma's River Flows In You (Shari got me started and now I am listening to it once a day)
COOKING BYTES: Made flatbread for the first time this week...so easy, so tasty, and so much fun! Thanks to Tracey and you can find the recipe here. (It's supposed to be a little brown at the edges.)
FAV NEW FIND: Matt struggled academically this first semester making the change from Guerin Catholic High to Carmel High and we were beginning to panic about the drop in grades during the adjustment period. Panic, truly panic. But, the boy with all his swimming, his choir commitments, being president of his chapter and also president of the state chapter of the Knights, and making the change in schools as a junior, managed to pull off a 3.1/4.0. Kudos to the kid. School does not come easily for him and his time for studying is at a premium. 3.1 sounds like heaven to us!
FAV THING THIS WEEK: Don't tell anyone...I still have all the trees and Christmas decor up and around. I begged the guys to let me have it all up just one more week, and they agreed. I enjoyed every moment of every single day with the twinkle lights on and everything. It was my favorite thing all week. It comes down tomorrow. Seriously, it does.
GOING TO: Enjoy the weekend being inside as much as possible wherever I go this weekend. It is COLD here and snowy, and windy, and icy, and I keep tapping my heels together three times chanting "There is no place like San Diego..." but apparently tapping one's heels together and chanting only works in movies with munchkins and yellow brick roads as I am still here. Swim meet should warm me up!
PRAYING FOR: Safe travel for people on the go this winter, please join me.
